Dear Members:

The holiday and awards season is upon us, and the New York City Chapter of IFMA is excited to announce another full and activity-filled schedule of networking, programming and celebratory events planned for December and the beginning of the New Year.

All of our event information, registration, calendars and general chapter information can be found on our mobile app and on our website.

Many of our Chapter members participated in two charity walks in the month of October. On October 19, 2014 the IFMA Cares team participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Central Park. This walk alone raised almost $2 million towards the cause. Then, on October 26, 2014 many of our members participated in the Out of the Darkness Walk in Robert Wagner Battery Park to raise money and awareness for suicide prevention. Members also gathered for a fun night at Madison Square Garden on November 4th with a tour of the facility and a Rangers game. Our Chapter closed the year by celebrating our accomplishments and the holidays with our holiday party on December 4, 2014 at Andaz 5th Avenue

Don’t forget to save the date one of our most anticipated events: our Annual Awards for Excellence Dinner on January 29, 2015 at the Pierre Hotel. We have an incredible line-up of nominees for each of our nine categories and we look forward to revealing the winners.

Over the past year, the enthusiasm and dedication of our membership has helped us maintain our status as the premier organization for Facility Managers and Professionals in the New York City area. We are immensely grateful for your support and guide of our mission and we look forward to next year with a new calendar of exciting programming and engaging networking events.

We wish you a joyful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Gary Anzalone
